Play.com The one stop for Entertainment needs

AdvantagesFast Delivaries, Good Customer Service, Cheap Prices

DisadvantagesNothing at all.

"...the features the game has. Play.com always have the most recent releases and have them at very competitive prices. Play.com does have its special offers, such as two games for £20 or something like that. The prices are always competitive and well worth checking out if you are looking to buy a new game or games. :::::::::: Books Tab :::::::::: Here we have three sections in the middle menu bar, Home, Audio Books and Calendars (a new section ..."

Let's go and Play.com

AdvantagesSpeedy delivery, fantastic customer service

DisadvantagesNone

"...bit of a minefield. Since discovering play.com some months ago, I no longer spend hours looking through different sites in order to find the best deals, I visit play.com, which can cater for my every need. The layout of the site is simple and uncluttered. Set against a white background, play.com has category listing tabs at the top of the home page, from which it is a simple process to find the items required. The home page will always display ..."

We Had Some Good Times...

AdvantagesVery good choice

DisadvantagesIf something goes amiss - they are completely disinterested.

"...follow the headings and and Play.com makes changes to its site on a regular basis. So the aim here is to give an overview along with my opinion of the strengths and weaknesses. Hopefully, that will be more helpful in guiding anyone's decision whether to do use this company. I do feel, however, that it may be of help just to let customers know of my recent experiences with Play.com. If you are familiar with the web site and its features, please ..." Read review

Disadvantagesn/a

"...take a look for myself! About Play.com & Pricing ***************************************** Play.com first started out in 1998, although i've only been a member of the site (and noticed it), for about 2 years. When you come to think where on earth you can browse on the Internet to find the item you are looking for at a cheap price, Play.com should be top of your list. They sell DVDs, games, CDs, gadgets, audiobooks and even ring tones! If ..." Read review

Are you ready to Play??

AdvantagesCheap prices, large range, free delivery

DisadvantagesEasy to spend way too much money

"Have you ever felt that you were being ripped off when buying DVDs from the high street?? I know I have, and I get great pleasure from buying 99% of my DVDs from on-line stores, and from one shop in particular, that is Play.com. Why Play? ************* Play was recommended to me by my Dad, and that's as good a reason as any other for a first visit. What impressed me, however, were the prices, on average DVDs are at least £2 cheaper than on ..." Read review

.comPLAYtely wonderful

AdvantagesExcellent layout, fast and simple ordering, competitively priced

DisadvantagesReturns policy needs polishing

"First off, apologies for the awful pun on the title. All the good puns had been taken already. Play.com (henceforth just “Play”) is one of the best-established shopping sites now operating in the UK. It sells CDs, DVDs, Audiobooks, Computer games, Mobile ringtones and even boys’ toys (a.k.a. ‘Gadgets’) at extremely competitive prices and with the added bonus of free, generally rapid delivery to all UK addresses. This really is the site that any ..." Read review

Come and PLAY with me!

Advantagescheap and fast, free delivery

Disadvantagespopular items are always out of stock

"...been bought from Amazon or Play.com and it has saved me from the hustle and bustle of real life. I used to shop on Ebay regularly but after a bad experience was a little apprehensive about using the internet to buy things. I came across Play.com a few months ago when I was frantically searching for a cheap digital frame. I searched many price comparison sites and the only thing that put me off most of them was the expensive P+P or reputation (I ..." Read review

Play.com's digital music store 'PLAYDigital'

AdvantagesGreat value, High Quality MP3s, easy to use and navigate.

DisadvantagesLimit to re-downloading

"...me. The music download section of Play.com 'PlayDigital' is something that I have been overlooking for a very long time, and I regret that very much, considering the amount of money I've spent on iTunes' broad but flawed download store. I recently began really shopping around for digital downloads rather than just, quite lazily only using apple's itunes store. I suppose the reason I mainly used this store was that it's built into the music player ..." Read review

It'ssssssssss Playtime!!!!

AdvantagesCheap prices, good delivery times, excellent customer service, and an intuitive website

DisadvantagesA wishlist would be useful. Packaging is also wasteful, and I spend too much money.

"...of your bank account; then play.com is one you should strenuously avoid. Play.com started life in 1998 as play247.co.uk. I first came across the Jersey based site at the beginning of 2001 when they sold region 1 and 2 DVDs, CDs and games. Since then they have expanded their range to include mobile phone backgrounds, polyphonic and standard ringtones, audiobooks and most recently a bizarre range of gadgets. I have predominantly used them for buying ..." Read review

This Is No Imitation, It's The Real Thing!

AdvantagesLoyalty to the customer

DisadvantagesNone, ever!

"...stumble upon a review for Play.com and discovered that the reviews author had stated "Play is an Amazon Rip Off" implying that Play had followed the path of Amazon; but in fact it was very much the other way round, I felt it important to set the record straight. Play was launched in 1996 as Play247.co.uk DVD had just launched in the UK and choice was still quite limited; however in the United States there were four times the selection available ..."

Make It Easy On Yourself This Christmas!

AdvantagesExcellent Service

DisadvantagesSpending Too Much

"...few years ago I discovered play.com by accident and have been a regular customer ever since. **THE SITE ITSELF** The whole layout of the site is very easy and quick to navigate your way through, there are separate headings for DVD’s region 1 and 2 although it’s normally region 2 DVD’s they sell as these are normally the UK requirement, however if your requirement is for Region 1 DVD’s then you will be connected to the ..."

More money to play with play.com!

AdvantagesEasy to use site, great range of items, cheaper prices than other shops/sites.

DisadvantagesNot quite as developed a range as some sites.

"...item and practically every time play.com came up as the cheapest so it's now the first place I start my search. So what exactly is Play.com? Play.com is an online leading retailer of CDs, DVDs, computer games, books and electronic items which in the past ten years has experienced huge success. Its actual offices are based in Jersey and as such they can buy the majority of their goods without suffering the perils of VAT which allows them to be sold ..." Read review
